Pasta is a main dish in our household because it’s so easy, fast and has a world of possibilities! You can tell how much I love pasta dishes (and noodles!) from my “Pastas” page. I’ve got quite a few recipes on there with many more to come! These Stuffed Jumbo Shells are the newest addition to my pastas page and they are so incredibly easy to make with very little prep time!
I included a link below to the bowls I use when it comes to mixing any ingredients! I love that they have fitted lids because it makes them great for storing and transferring food as well.
The filling for these pasta shells includes three types of cheese: ricotta, parmesan, and mozzarella. With the addition of the egg and seasoning, you get a flavorful, creamy, cheesy filling that compliments the marinara sauce quite nicely.
After stuffing and baking the pasta shells, you’re ready to dig in and enjoy an easy dinner that looks and tastes like you spent hours making it. And a little side note, if you’re looking for a low carb version of this recipe, please check out my Stuffed Eggplant Roll Ups! It’s pretty much the same recipe except I use eggplants instead of pasta shells. All yum all around!

Like I’m sure many of you can relate, I LOVE POTSTICKERS, GYOZA, DUMPLINGS, whatever you want to call 'em! But unfortunately, they are so time consuming to make. That’s where these noodles come in play! You get all the fillings and flavor of a potsticker, without all the labor. With two kids, I no longer have the time to stuff, fold and fry each individual dumpling. The idea of just throwing all the ingredients into a skillet was a life saver.
Cooking rice noodles can be a bit tricky as you have to soak them in cold water for a couple of hours before actually boiling them. And then when you do start the boiling, you have to make sure not to overcook. Especially for recipes like these that require frying. You don’t want the noodles to come out too mushy in the final product. Usually the rice noodle packages will come with instructions but I’ve outlined my way of cooking them in the directions below as well! I hope you enjoy this dish as much as I did.
